Whether it is due to rumors or campaign stops, Sarah Palin has been making news over the recent weeks. From the set of The View to stuff left wing bloggers spew, the rumors and attacks keep coming at the former Governor of Alaska and her family. Many who follow politics wonder why these rumors and attacks--directed at a woman who currently does not hold office-- continue after all of these years. The reason is simple. It is highly likely that the democrats will play the gender card in order to win in the 2016 presidential elections. Sarah Palin is the only conservative republican woman with the name recognition and following that can win against Hillary Clinton or any other female democrat that will be pedestaled by the DNC and the media.
